NASA Unveils Automated Application System for Tech Patent Licensing

NASA has launched a system that works to automate the process for transferring NASA-patented technology to industry.

The Automated Technology Licensing Application System is designed to help companies apply for any of the more than 1,400 NASA technologies that are currently available for licensing, the agency said Tuesday.

ATLAS works to collect basic information from applicants as well as email updates on the application status and any required actions.

Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator of NASA’s space technology mission directorate, said the agency’s technology transfer program seeks to help create jobs, support U.S. economic competitiveness and introduce new products and services to market.

NASA’s searchable patent portfolio includes technologies in various fields such aeronautics, propulsion, electronics, materials, sensors, instrumentation and other disciplines.
